Developers, BAFTA Scotland needs your games. The 2015 BAFTA Scotland competition is now open for entries.
The games category offers developers of all games released between 18th July 2014 – 2nd July 2015 are eligible. This includes all platforms – online (browser) games, mobile, tablet, console, PC, Mac, Linux, etc. It doesn’t matter if games were released commercially (paid for) or released for free. The category is also open to experienced game studios, independent developers and amateur teams. As long as the game was publicly available between the eligible dates, you can enter.
The games category is FREE to enter. Free as in no cost. Zero cash. Gratis.
In previous years games winners have included Quarrel (Denki), Bad Hotel (Lucky Frame) and GTA V (Rockstar North).
Whether you’ve released a casual, social or mobile game, a AAA console blockbuster, or anything in between, then the competition is open to you. Games released by student teams, or which have previously been entered in other competitions (Dare to be Digital, BAFTA New Talent Awards, etc.) are also eligible to enter.
Jude McLaverty, the director of BAFTA Scotland told us:
The sheer wealth and diversity of Scottish television, film and games continues to grow each year. We had an extraordinary response to last year’s call for entries resulting in one of the best award ceremonies we’ve ever hosted. Also, it’s worth noting that we’re excited to announce the re-instatement of the Short Film category in this years role call. Here’s to 2015, we’re sure it will be nothing short of outstanding.
With Scotland’s film output remaining low and television productions few and far between, the BAFTA Scotland games category is an amazing opportunity to show the rest of the screen industries how prolific and diverse the country’s games sector really is.
